SEEN AND HEARD By and Exchange When you can't stand criticism then it's time to quit. An average person is what we all think we are not, but mostly are. An income these days is a email sum of money entirely surrounded by taxes. It's good to have faith in your ability, but it's best to have the ab- The trouble with a lot of dumb guys is that they prove it by talking too much. The average self-made man is so inflated of chest he looks like a pouter pigeon. It isn't always luck. If you'll look at their hands, you'll find most of them have corns. When a good looking girl smiles at you keep cool. She may be a book agent just practicing. Some popole are selfish in their prayers. They pray for rain so that they won't have to shovel snow.

HIGH SCHOOL TEACHERS ARE IN DEMAND THIS YEAR HAYS, Kans., May 20 There is a considerable demand for high school teachers this year, but a comparatively small demand for grade school teachers, according to F. B. Lee, registrar at Hays State College, who has been aiding Hays graduates in their efforts to get jobs. Mr. Lee said that Hays received notice of 200 high school positions Leing open this spring, but scarcely a score of grade positions. He believes that those figures indicate that grade school teachers are plentiful in the state just now, but that the supply of high school teachers may not be quite enough to meet the demand. A large number of the students going out from K. S. T. C. of Hays this year have already been placed, according to Mr. Lee, but there are still a few candidates for high school jobs and a considerable number wanting grade school work who have not been definitely signed up. Jack Wright says that the West-. branch folks have decided not to hold itheir Old Settlers' picnic this year on account of the lateness of the season and the pressure of farm work. Later on the Westbranch folks promise to put on a watermelon carnival that will partially make up for their failure to come across with the picnic. Esbon Times. There are probably just as poor fish left in the sea as some married women have caught. . A K. U. student has adorned his raincoat with a drawing of a tombstone and below it the slogan, "Kan sas makes the worst corn in the world." Talk about luck. We read the oth er day cf a man who underwent an oneiation because he swallowed a pearl in an oyster, and the pearl proved to be valuable (notion to cov or the cost of the operation and half the funeral expenses. Ex. Undertakers are the only people in business who hear nothing but kind words spoken of everyone, Little Bobby was told that if he prayed hard he might get a little sister. So one night, after he had prayed for some time, he added: "Dear Lord, if you have a baby almost finished don't wait to put in her tonsils as they have to be taken out anyway." "What is the best way to approach you for a loan?" asked a Lyons man of a bank president, according to the News. "If you are sensitive, was the reply, "write me about it and when you get my answer, tear it up without reading it." How are your teeth ? Now is the time to get them in shape. The corn-on-the-cob season is rapidly approaching. An 18-year-old speeder in Los Angeles was sentenced by the judge to read every newfpaper in the city each day for six months and rewrite in his own handwriting the traffic-accident stories in them. No sir, I ain't never seen the Cats-kill mountains, but I sure have watched them kill mice. At a recent 8th grade examination held in Woodson county the pupil was asked to write the flag salute. One youngster wrote thusly: "I pledge a legion to the flag and to the Republican for which it stands One nation invisible with liberty and injustice for all. Amen" Yates Cen-ter News. Charles Session reports to the To-peka Capital that a young lady and her grandmother were walking on Kansas avenue the other day. When they reached Sixth they stopped long enough for the girl to powder her grandmother's nose. Broadmindedness is the ability to smile when the other fellow pets the girl you brought to the party. An exchange tells how a splinter may be easily removed from the flesh in painless manner: Nearly fill a wide mouthed bottle with hot water, place the injured part over the mouth of the bottle and press slightly. The suction will draw the flesh down and in a minute or two the steam will ex tract the splinter and the inflamma tion.

"Made in Germany" may become a trade-mark that American manufacturers will come to fear more than they did before the war. At the exports exposition to be held in New York, June 15, they will show among other things a vacuum cooker that will enable the housewife to -cook meals months ahead, a phonograph for standard records, selling at $3.50 retail, a standard sewing machine for $7.50 and a typewriter for $10. The late Woodrow Wilson declared that Germany's greatest menace to the world was not her militaryism so much as her remarkable efficiency. In this age of efficiency engineers and experts it will be a difficult proposition to penalize any nation or industry because it excells. Sounded Reasonable The teacher asked the class in natural history "Where is the home of the swallow?" A long silence, then a hand moved. "All right, you may answer, Robert," smiled the teacher. "The home of the swallow is in the stummick," declared Robert. From an exchange we clip: "A young married couple expected a vis it from the stork. The husband want ed a boy, and prayed for one every night. The wife wanted a girl, and prayed nightly that a girl might be vouchsafed her. Providence heard this young couple and both their prayers were granted."

He says a diminished use of the jaws is causing changes in the bony framework of the human face. Walter Stonehom who compiles the photographic record of the nation's most famous men for the national photographic gallery, declares that in general mens' faces are becoming narrower and more refined. Men use their jaws less in chewing England's famous old roast beef, he says, even if they use them more in conversation than their reputedly taciturn ancestors.
